LOGAN, Utah - Utah State head softball coach Steve Johnson announced a full competition schedule for the 2014 fall season Thursday.
The Aggies will open the fall hosting Salt Lake Community College on Friday, Sept. 19 with the first pitch set for 5 p.m.
The team will then compete in a tournament hosted by Utah Valley, Sept. 26-28. Utah State will join UVU, BYU, SLCC, Snow College, Weber State and the College of Southern Idaho in the tournament.

The final fall tournament will be the SLCC Round Robin, featuring the Aggies, Bruins and Idaho State. Utah State will take on SLCC at 10 a.m. and ISU at 12:30 p.m.
"I'm excited to have a full fall schedule this year. We will be able to use these games to evaluate our new kids better and to see how our team is progressing through the fall," Johnson said. "With our new roster, there will be a lot of competition for spots so these games will be another tool to help us make decisions for the spring."
Scattered between the official tournament play, Utah State will host three intrasquad home scrimmages. The annual Alumni Game will be held as part of the 2014 Homecoming activities on Saturday, Oct. 11. The time of the game will be announced at a later date, once the kickoff time for the football game has been determined. The next scrimmage will be the Fall World Series, held at 3 p.m. on Oct. 22, 23 and 24. The fall season will conclude with the Halloween Game, a scrimmage where the team and coaching staff will be in costume. Fans are invited to attend prior to the football game against UNLV for the scrimmage, trick-or-treating and other activities.
